Access/Excel problem solved

the problem with MS Access and Excel files that couldn't
be opened seems to be solved.
I forgot to mention that our home filesystem is NFS
mounted on the samba server and then exported as shares.
When I mount the filesystem with the NFS option "nolock"
(do not start lockd) everything works fine. 
When I do not use the option I have to set the samba option 
"fake oplocks = yes".
As far as I remember I didn't mount the filesystem with
the nolock option when I had the old linux kernel and
samba 2.0.5a installed.
Maybe some NFS-gurus can shed a light on this behavior.
